Pursuing Practices of Domain - Driven Design in PHP
Try to have your drawings included in your sheets, that way you can practice on explaining the core of the drawing, instead of the drawing itself. Also try not to talk about doctrine, as not everybody is well knows with it. More examples would have been nice.

TDD and getting paid
Good talk, would have liked to have the real life coding session replaced with refactor examples from legacy to tdd

Developing & Deploying High Performance PHP Applications
It was mainly a promo for oracle... Not quite what we had hoped for. One star for the usb stick though. :)

Advanced OO patterns
Great talk, lots of handraising exercise. I would have liked to see more on the latter subjects (and why not to use singletons) rather than the dependency injection.

Clean PHP
I lost track of all the different coding standards about 10 minutes in to the presentation. It was very generic, maybe pick the best 5 next time and tell a little more about them? Reading directly from the screen while we had to look at a nice picture is not great, but it gets even worse when you try to explain the picture. Maybe a good idea is a slide of key points per subject and maybe a bad (how not to do it) and a good example code sheet with every subject. This would require way less talking on your side, and a lot more attention on our side.

Writing documentation the easy way
Not quite what we expected. It was more about user manuals, rather than code documentation. More talk preperation would have been nice, as we did not quite grasp your train (of slightly stockato) of thought.

First Class APIs
The first 30 min where fantastic, it got a little repatative afterwords. A little less focus on first class apis and more focus on examples and maybe some code to go with that.

Modular Application Architecture

Practical Git
Good talk, wasnt too hard to follow even though I was not familiar with git. You did loose focus at some points. We all loved your svn bashing!

How not to design a toad
The talk had some interesting elements, but was a bit slow paced and focussed on font / colors and boxes. Would have hoped for more usability and examples. Maybe you didnt have enough content and tried to speak slower to compensate?

Programming Style and Your Brain

OAuth: A Question of Trust
Great talk, wonderfull enthusiasm. I was lost a little bit sometimes if we were talking about server or client implementation. One star extra for comment of phone choice.

Fast, Not Furious
Great content, well presented. When you are done, you're done, I thought the end was a bit messy.

Continuous data processing and PHP
Work on your presentation style, you could have shown some more enthusiasm. I hadnt expected a case study, maybe you can flip the talk around and address the general issues and what solutions are possible, and which one is better, which one you used and why we should or should not do it your way.

Rasmus Lerdorf will do the Saturday opening keynote!
Too much of a "make a difference" talk. I like the part about how to contribute to php, but the intro should have been something technical useful.

Asynchronous PHP
Good presentation style, good content. Maybe a slightly better description in the program about it mainly showing different frameworks. Loved the bit about generators though!

AngularJS + Ionic = Mobile Web Applications
Talk is too slow, also I think the examples and explenations are the wrong way around, start with the awesome core, start with showing us something that works, then explain how it was built, then branch out to all the extras it can be used for. I'd rather have you start with "this presentation is made in angular" and explain how it works, because this is epic!

Don't reboot, debug!
Good talk, although I had hoped for a little more in depth, especially as most of the people already knew htop, and logged all the things. Loved the passion you had for the subject!

The secrets of Cryptography
For a talk of 45 minutes, spending 15 minutes on the history is quite long. Maybe for this conference it would have been cool to go in to phpencrypt a little more.

A year of continuous delivery
Practice your talk more so you are less nervous and know your slides better. I would have liked some better explenation about why certain choices have been made and what pros and cons the choice has.

Hacking your way to better security
This was a fantastic talk for anybody who wasn't familiar with the subject matter! If you could update the blurb to say it is a step by step explanation at a basic level that would help people make an informed choice if this talk is too basic for their skillset.

Being functional in PHP
Great talk, personally I would have liked a little less re-iteration of points and more examples and awesome techniques you can use fp for. Also if you increase the pase you wouldnt have to skip part

Getting started with PHP core development
Great talk about how to contribute back to the php community. English could still be slightly improved and needs more references/gifs/videos from the core ;)

Agility in Software Engineering: Concepts and Misconceptions
When talking about TDD for 30 minutes of a 45 minute talk, please make sure it says so on the summary so your audience can make an informed decision on if this talk is for them. Maybe reduce the self promotion of your social media presence.

The Science of Code Reviews
Rick is a great speaker with a good sense of humor and he really believes what he preaches, but it's not to repetitive. You might also be interested in post commit review options such as reviewboard, We do a weekly review roulette, you can check out my co-workers blog for more info: https://www.moxio.com/blog/8/introducing-review-roulette https://www.moxio.com/blog/15/review-roulette-everyone-is-a-winner

Being a remote developer
I loved the insights and the message delivered, I wouldn't have minded some more tips and tricks for working remotely like the screen pair programming and the video meetings.
